Hey everybody.

First of all, english is'nt my mother tongue. Hope you'll be a bit patient with me. ;)

Also I want to thank kenatonline, vollemelk and hato (and shonk and ... all of the great guys I forgot :) ) for your excellent work here.
I needed openvpn on my nas and therefor I installed Debian squeeze with kernel 3.8.3 (tutorial here at the board) on it.
First 3 times the nas bricked with boot circle. The reason was wrong settings at install script.
Then I startet doing all by myself and installed from hand.
All works fine. :up:

But... I don't really know why but I want to have Wheezy on it.

Problem here: I don't have redundance for data.
Could'nt organize an hdd wich is big enough. :shock:

So, the question is:
Is it relatively save to upgrade via apt with wheezy sources or is'nt the risk worth the trouble?
I'm a bit afraid to brick it and lose all the data.

Or is it comparatively save and when the version upgrade fails I only need to start compiling the 3.8.3 kernel again?

Is 3.8.3 the highest kernel version supported for LS-WVL, yet? :oops:

Sorry if my questions seem a bit noobish. Embedded systems are relatively new ground for me. ^^

Thanks in advance, respectfully

Ronny

Oh, I forgot! My system is set up as followed:
- system partitions are mirrored
- data partitions are not in any raid (have 2 x 1,7 TB )

Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# file system   mount point     type    options                 dump pass

/dev/md0        /boot           ext3    ro,nosuid,nodev         0    2
